Any of you had experience with both? Pro's and con's of your experience would be appreciated.

I'm currently on Ipad 1 but like the idea of not being limited by Apple preferences (i.e. no flash). Also, the Galaxy has the ability to run 4 G. My conern is that I'd be starting all over in the app purchase department, which could get expesive, but if it's worth it, I'll do it.

I have no experience with the Galaxy, but we love our iPad 2. Those were actually our front-runners as well. From what I know 4G is more hype than anything so I wouldn't let that sway your decision.

I have learned many expensive lessons in my day. I bought the expensive laptop that the computer types here overwhelmingly said was better than a Mac. It ended up being a huge waste of money. I now have two Mac laptops, and couldn't be happier. I recently bought a Motorola Atrix phone, hoping to combine two gadgets in my life - my Blackberry and my iPod touch. I had let myself believe it could do everything the iPhone could do and more, thanks to hundreds of posts here to that effect. I sit here now, Atrix on my belt and old iPod touch in my pocket.

Frankly, at this point nothing the Apple bashers can say will convince me that anyone else's tablet can do what the iPad can do. I've been burned too many times. Education is getting too expensive.

Out of curiosity, why 4G? This is being offered on a lot of tablet PC's and I just don't get it. Are you really in need of access (particularly limited speed and size access) for as much as you would pay for home service? Especially if you will mostly be using it at home.

You seriously miss Flash?

Even on my own live streaming site (which uses Flash for the video), I'm in the middle of creating a solution for iOS devices. When I'm done, I can think of no reason why I'd actually need Flash for anything.

Take this for what its worth but I have the Samsung Captivate (Samsung Galaxy) cellphone and it is AWFUL. How Samsung could EVER let a phone like this go out to consumers is beyond me. There is virtually no support for it, the phone itself is extremely sluggish and laggy and I have to put up with it for another year.

This is not the first time I have heard of this either.

I recently went thru this same decision and coincidently enough a friend was asking the same question this AM. I have a Touch and like it as a device but I hate having to use iTunes so that puts the Ipad at -1 right from the get go.

Although the Samsung does not allow you to directly use jump drives (need a $25 adapter), with the Ipad you have no option at all. If this is an important feature to you then you may want to consider the Gallaxy.

Just because Samsung may make a shitty phone doesn't mean the Gallaxy is shitty.

To the person who said their aren't many Android apps I give you .

I went with the Gallaxy Tab myself because I'm not a fan of being locked into Apple only apps as well as iTunes. I could not be happier but I am not going to tell you that the Gallaxy is better. OTOH, I'm not sure the Ipad is better either. I think they are so close it comes down to preference in the OS.

I own a Droid X2 so it was natural for me to buy the Gallaxy. If you already own an iphone then go with the iPAD.

There's a lot of "generalization" and "by extension" comments in the thread. Just because you don't like the Motorola Zoom, doesn't mean you wouldn't like the Gallaxy. Two different products.

iTunes will go away as the software provder in October. It will still exsist for music and such, but you won't get your operating system from iTunes or have to sync to it. All operating system upgrades will come from the app store when iOS 5 comes out next week.

From your link:

"So I guess my bottom-line advice is this: at price parity, the iPad 2 is a better bet for the average user, since it’s a more stable, near-perfect device with a rich assortment of apps for nearly every possible function you’d like to perform on your tablet. Therefore, unless you’ve got a grudge against Apple for some reason, or are enamored with the idea of having a more configurable tablet, there’s not a lot of justification to go with the less mature, less established device at the same price.

Dude, did you not read my OP? I said essentially the same thing and provided the link you're refering to for the benefit of the thread OP. I have no dog in this hunt.

THIS.

$100 less than a comparable iPad2 (WiFi only), but the TF has GPS and the iPad does not. It also has a microSD card slot and HDMI out built into it, which the iPad does not. Include the keyboard dock and you're only about $50 more than the WiFi only iPad 2, and you get an Android specific keyboard, two full size USB ports, one full size SD card slot (GREAT for getting pictures off of your cameras!) and about 6 or more hours more battery life.

As for buying a shit ton of apps... unless you just want to play a bunch of stupid little games, there's not much you'd need to buy to make either tablet all that useful. I think I've probably spent less than $15 on apps since I switched to an Android phone 2 years ago. If I purchase an app that runs on my TF and my phone, I can install it on both.

You mean, like with the demise of the 5 1/4 inch floppy, the parallel port, the 3.5" floppy, etc. Apple once again accurately sees and leads the way to the future, while many of its detractors point out the lack of said feature as reason it sucks?

based on what? Your comment as written as ZERO benefit to the OP.

ETA and my comment stands even if you said the Gallaxy was higher quality. I've compared both and there weren't any obvious quality differences although "on paper" the Gallaxy seems to have an advantage in the hardware department.

That's not entirely true. If you JailBreak you can use the camera kit. Also you don't have to use iTunes to put music or videos on your iPad. There's free software out there that will allow you to transfer it.

The iPad is first and foremost a consumer product. Depending on what is already out there, you would probably be better off with purpose-built solutions, and something tells me Android would be the way to go - just like it was for Amazon's new Fire.

With an iPad, you can use bluetooth keyboards, and from what I understand, they work well.

I think that basic design concept (either via physical connection, or wireless and sharing a folder/case will be the death knell of the netbook, once the tablet OS possibilities expand.

This is where I'm at as well but was considering something different so as to not be "brainwashe". I have a MacBook Pro that is 3 years old and I can count on 2 fingers the times it has needed a force quit or reboot. It's been reliable as has the iPad, and iPhone. They are not without flaw but better than everything else I've experienced.

I'm currently on Ipad 1 but like the idea of not being limited by Apple preferences (i.e. no flash). Also, the Galaxy has the ability to run 4 G. My conern is that I'd be starting all over in the app purchase department, which could get expesive, but if it's worth it, I'll do it.


Out of curiosity, why 4G? This is being offered on a lot of tablet PC's and I just don't get it. Are you really in need of access (particularly limited speed and size access) for as much as you would pay for home service? Especially if you will mostly be using it at home.


I'm considering dumping the iphone for a dedicated phone and doing all app related tasks on a tablet. I agree 4G is not necessary but figured I'd look around and not let myself fall into Apple tunnelvision.

Perhaps it isn't just flash but over the weekend my BIL (on the galaxy) was getting into websites that my iPad would not. He gave me the pro's and con's but I want more opinion. One thing I've noticed is that the "pop up" username and password entries don't work on certain sites.

Thanks, I need to get edumacated on these things. My son in law is always riding me because I have a cell phone that is just a cell phone and he has a phone that does everything but wipe your ass. I figure an I Pad size device is a good compromise that I can get my paws to work. If an IPad also could be a phone it would be even better.

Keep current Ipad 1 until 3 comes out.
